“The equipment that will be part of the Nuclear Medicine Center of Santa Cruz, which is more than 90% complete,” the Vice Minister of Communication, Gabriela Alcón, said to representatives of the media.

According to the head of the Vice-Ministry attached to the Presidency’s portfolio, these advanced technological means will reinforce the treatment of oncological diseases in this hospital, the second of its kind to be installed in Bolivia.

Alcón explained that the Government prioritizes the construction of this health care institution, which is part of the Bolivian Network of Nuclear Medicine Centers, in order to combat oncological diseases in the country.

Patients at Pampa de la Isla will have access to diagnosis by positron emission tomography (PET/CT), which uses small amounts of radiotracers, a special camera and a computer to evaluate the functions of tissues and organs through image analysis.

They will also have access to radiotherapy with linear accelerators and chemotherapy for clinical oncology patients.
